NY Paper to Publish Additional
Gun Owners´ Names, Addresses

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/29/2012 6:55:49 PM

The New York newspaper that drew criticism for publishing the names and addresses of hundreds of legal gun permit holders is doubling down by publishing the personal information of even more law-abiding gun owners. To great criticism, the Journal News published an interactive map showing the names and addresses of the legal gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties just before Christmas. Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state.

RE #9

True, its a matter of public record. However, the intention of registering a gun was largely due to law enforcement. And there is a difference between you going to the county and doing a search and a news paper publishing everything.

Perhaps Briebart could publish the divorce records of everyone in that county....after all its in the public record. Or perhaps publish an interactive map of everyone that´s been adopted... or every minority home owner... or an interactive map over every registered democrat that voted in the election. Maybe publish an interactive map of luxury car owners, or a map of corporate executives, or business owners, licensed pets????

There is freedom of the press and then there is the abuse of the private citizen. This news paper is ABUSING the public record, specifically to pressure private, law abiding citizens. If this is allowed to stand, there is no end to what trouble the press can get into.

And most amazing ......... the press cant be bothered with vetting Obama, reporting ob Fast and Furious, Benghazi etc, but they have the time to badger private citizens.

I don´t care if people know I own guns. In fact, I own lots of guns - and there´s no complete record of all of them. And I buy badass bullets for those guns to increase their stopping power. And I have a Concealed Carry Permit so one can never know if I am armed or not - so you´d better watch what you do around me. Or maybe I am just pulling your leg and want to tell you that you shouldn´t believe everything you read. Or maybe you should. Just remember to be nice around me.

FTA: "Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state."
Interesting. I´m looking forward to seeing the names and addresses of all those folks in NY, especially the, uh, famous ones. You know, the politicians, entertainers, television folks, and especially those good people on the news programs. Can´t wait CynDee. What´s that? You won´t be publishing those peoples´ names? Come again? That might endanger them? So, you are flexing your 1st Amendment rights, just not toward your lefty famous buddies. Kinda being selective, huh?
We should check. Did she name everyone with a permit in those areas, or did she leave some people off the map? If she left anyone off of the map, she is a fraud, a grandstander and an incrediby reckless woman.

New York State has no restriction on long gun purchase, no requirement to register, or license requirement. These are required for handguns. So, not having your name and address listed doesn’t mean there is not a firearm in the home. Also, almost beyond belief to some, there may even be handguns not duly reported to the authorities in some dwellings, particularly those of professional criminals.

As a CCW holder, we are not allowed to show our carry- that why it´s called "Concealed Carry". Even if your shirt flies up in a breeze and someone sees your gun and calls a cop, you can actually be arrested for what is called "Brandishing". You must keep your weapon concealed at all times. So, this bunch of idiots in NY publishing the names is kind of a good thing. I, personally, can´t tell people I´m carrying a weapon. But, the loony publisher can do that for me. To me- that´s actually a good thing.

#27, you can´t tell people you are carrying, but you can tell them you have a CCW permit. Maybe they will make the assumption that you are carrying. If someone asks "Are you carrying"? you can always respond "I´m not allowed to tell you I am carrying" and let them assume what they will.

#12 stated it perfectly. There are many things that are available in public record, but most people would be horrified to have that information broadcast to the world. And that is exactly what the paper did...BROADCAST the information to the world. That is totally irresponsible. You do remember that even with a free press and free speech, there is such a thing as a limitation on rights when it infringes on the rights of others. You can yell "fire" in a crowded theater but expect to pay the consequences for your actions as people get stampeded to death in the panic. Even if no one is hurt, they can still arrest you for endangering the lives of others,

Ages and ages ago, I worked for a local newspaper chain. We never had problems, because the managing editor refused to hire any journalism or communications majors. After the new owner forced that editor out, the very liberal new editor decided to publish a very striking color photo of a car fire in which a mother of 3 was killed on the cover of the year-end review edition.

The family sued, claiming it no longer had any news value, as the accident had happened at the beginning of the year. The courts agreed, all through the appeal process.

Legal gun owners following the law are not newsworthy. It was an attempt to intimidate them. They should sue.

This newspaper is clearly up to something, and we have no reason to assume that they are just doing it on their own. They are doubling down, and doing it rather outrageously, attempting to inhibit law abiding private citizens from exercising their constitutional rights. That´s quite a big fight to pick. Why are they doing it? What are they trying to accomplish? What are they trying to make happen? What response are they trying to invite? I have an idea.

Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into responding? Could they be attempting to lure the NRA into an expensive legal battle with the ACLU, pitting the First Amendment against the Second Amendment? Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into depleting their resources over this nonsense rather than preserving it for the bigger fight over the gun control legislation we will see passed in 2013?

Almost every home in Texas has, as a standard item, a directory of all the people in the area that own guns and are, therefore, armed. We use it all the time for many different purposes. We call it "the phone book."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
